Rivulet™ Artisan Pecan Liqueur Expands Into Tennessee With Lipman Brothers

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Dec. 4, 2014 – The critically acclaimed Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur, an offspring of the marriage between Bourbon barrel-aged brandy and the delicately extracted essence of the American pecan, will be arriving in Tennessee just in time for the holiday gift-giving season.

Lipman Brothers will be distributing Rivulet to purveyors of fine spirits, restaurants and drinking establishments in Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga. Rivulet retails for about $35 for a 750ml bottle.

Rivulet combines the finest slow-distilled brandy, gently aged to perfection in small oak casks, with a proprietary recipe that extracts the delicate pecan flavor. The world’s first pecan liqueur was introduced in Kentucky this past summer and has been garnering international acclaim. 

“We are very excited to be able to introduce Rivulet into the great state of Tennessee,” said James B. Marshall, the managing director of C88 Holdings, LLC, the Louisville, Ky.-based producer of Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur.  “We know Tennesseans have become accustomed to tasting and purchasing the finest small batch spirits available and now they can add Rivulet to their spirits repertoire.”

Rivulet was recently awarded the highest honor, a Double-Gold Medal, at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.  Additionally, it has won a variety of medals at prestigious competitions around the world including those in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Tampa, Denver, Berlin, Hong Kong and London.  In fact, Rivulet has already become the world’s highest-rated nut liqueur according to the Proof 66 Ratings Service, an entity that mathematically uses an algorithm to blend scores from the most prestigious competitions into an overall rating.

“Rivulet Liqueur is a unique, true expression of southern taste and fits well with our portfolio,” said Greg Naiser, general manager and director of sales for Lipman Brothers in Tennessee.  “Rivulet will make a nice addition to offerings handled by the fine bars, restaurants and retail shops statewide.”

Lipman Brothers, founded in 1939, was the first distributor of wine and spirits in Middle Tennessee.  Since then, it has expanded into eastern Tennessee, including Knoxville, Chattanooga and the Tri-Cities area.

 “We spent years perfecting just the right balance of brandy, pecans and our proprietary special ingredients to achieve what we believe is a uniquely delicate luxury liqueur,” said Marshall. “It is also Fair Trade Certified so consumers can sip and savor it, or gift it, guilt-free.”
